Pink is for October Too!

Pink is the colour of October - Why? Not only is it a fabulous colour that teams with so many other colours through design, fashion, art, interiors, food & the affliate colour for girls & women, it is the official colour for Breast Cancer Awareness, and its 'Pink Ribbon' campaign.
You don't need to know anyone who has had breast cancer to be touched by it - by just contributing to the prevention and research for a cure - helps all. I have been touched by it - not directly, but indirectly - with a great aunt, and now with news last week of my best friend's mum who has been in remission for close to15 years is now off to have a biopsy, and preparing for treatment again on a 'new' side where the doctor's have found it's come back again. Words we just don't want to hear. But with your help and early detection, and support -  there is a positive light and fight in it.
So I urge to contribute in any way possible to help in fund raising, hosting a morning or afternoon tea, 'wearing pink to work day' at he office, holding a movie night, ask people to sponsor for going pink in some way! Or just buying a Pink Ribbon. However & whatever you do you will be contributing to the prevention & cure.
Monday 25th October is the official Pink Ribbon day - but you don't have to wait til then - get your Pink on and start today to make your October a Pink one!

Did You Know .... 'One in every nine Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 85. It could be a mother, sister, aunt, cousin, niece or friend. Whoever they are, one thing they have in common is that they will all need our help and support.
This October, Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon Day is your chance to help raise money and awareness for all Australian women affected by breast cancer.
For as much as we do to help improve survival rates and treatments, the fact is there is still so much more to be done in the fight against this terrible disease.
Show your support for breast cancer by ordering pink products to sell, volunteering your time to help, buying pink, holding a pink fundraiser, or making a donation.'

Other merchandise can be found at these Australian locations - Where can I find pink products?
Look out for our Pink Ribbon stalls across Australia throughout October and on Pink Ribbon Day, Monday, October 25th.
Pink products are available across Australia for the month of October from our supporting national outlets: Amcal, Autograph, BeMe, Best & Less, Crossroads, Curves, Millers, Rockmans and Wombat.
